By BBN Staff: Rumors that US authorities extracted a Mexican drug lord in Belize, are just rumors.
Yesterday this misleading information was circulated in various circles and even on social media claiming that the drug lord was connected to El Chapo and was stashed in a safe house somewhere in our country.
However, according to the Department of Immigration in Belmopan, yesterday they processed the only US fugitive who was at the Hattieville prison.
This man, who remains unnamed, is to be transported to the United States by the US Marshalls.
However, the date of his departure is not yet known.
